Hobart Whisky Christmas Release

Barrel aged Cherry Liqueur Cask Finish – 21-006

Christmas 2021 Limited Release

Something unique in the spirit of Christmas, Hobart Whisky Barrel Aged Tasmanian Cherry Liqueur, and Single Malt whisky finished in the very same cask.

The whisky started with a vatting of carefully selected casks suitable to finish, predominantly ex-Bourbon with a small portion of Pedro Ximinez. It was important to ensure we found mature stock that provided a nice balance of spirit and wood, complementing the sweetness provided by the cherry liqueur cask. Finished for three months, then resting, before being bottled in time for a festive season release.

This is a rich and sweet whisky, perfect alongside your Christmas feast, or a quiet dram to see out 2021.

Tasting Notes

A sweet fruit-driven nose with red apple, icing sugar dusted cherries, and candied lollies.

The palate is thick, with notes of fresh raspberry lemonade, berry compote, maraschino cherries, and toffee apple. Sweet vanilla custard and honeycomb follow the initial fruit notes, with a subtle, fresh, rustic orchard element.

A drawn out finish with dark fruit, black forest cake, and gentle spice.
